The decade before Rachmaninoff's emigration from Russia was, without a doubt, the apex of his career as a composer. John Chrysostom , and a large number of songs and piano pieces all date from those years. The composer never dreamt at the time that he would be visiting the country where he would eventually make his home and where he would eventually die. He accepted the offer only after some hesitation, and then only because he hoped that the fees he was promised would allow him to realize his dream of buying an automobile. In this work, Rachmaninoff aspired to be worthy of the 19th-century virtuoso tradition in every respect. The last of the great Romantic pianist-composers in the lineage of Chopin, Liszt, and Rubinstein, Rachmaninoff also wanted, it seems, to emulate the synthesis between concerto and symphony achieved in the two piano concertos of Brahms. This is shown by the many orchestral solos that join, and sometimes compete with, the piano soloist, as well as by the numerous thematic links between movements, carefully planned and masterfully executed.
